If you're looking for good sized White-Tails, come on up to Saskatchewan...you have a good chance of bagging one that will set a world record!
James, my son actually wants a nice young deer to eat, he didn't shoot a rather large buck a few days ago as he wanted to keep him producing, he was chasing some smaller bucks away. Our land has 200+ acres of woods in addition to corn, wheat, bean fields so they are full bodied. Where we hunt is in the hills some distance from here and their diet is what they find in the woods, so are smaller bodied.
I haven't gotten one so far and would be happy to have that one.:thumbsup:
That's perfect eating size! So what's on the menu? Any summer sausage? My son had some cheddar summer sausage made last year. Oh boy, best stuff ever. Had his dear processed at Nadler's in Wellington.
You process your own?
Some years ago I hunted with a friend and we both brought animals home. He has a friend who was a retired butched that does a little freelance work on occasion. He pulled out his knives and gauntlet and started cutting. Two of us couldn't wrap and mark the meat fast enough. :eek: I can BUTCHER a deer but I prefer to have them butchered. :)
Am I the only one that can see the spots ?Attachment 288641
I am suprised that kioti could even lift that 120lbs of deer :laughing:
Congrats on the kill. You have done better than me thus far. I havent been having much luck. I dont know where they all went this year??
On a side note, what do you do with the deer? Do you take it somewhere for processing? Do you do it yourself? What do you get? I know alot of guys that get ALL burger. Personally, I like the tip roast in the back legs and alot of jerky:thumbsup: and the cuts that arent so good for jerky (front legs, lower rear legs, etc) get ground.
James, nice buck, so he has a little milk on his mouth, just adds to the flavor:D
LD1, I bet you a cup of coffee, that Kioti tracked the deer down and brought it home for James, pretty smart tractor if you ask me!!!:laughing:
I took a "cull" buck last night, so I guess we will both be up to our arm pits today.
Great job, love to hear the deer coming back in that country over the last 30 years, where few when I lived in Harrison Arkansas.
